Fort Standard is a New York-based contemporary design studio founded by Gregory Buntain and Ian Collings. Their collaborative work is a manifestation of their shared vision and progressive design approach, which pairs timeless materials with modern process.
Often using traditional methods of production in innovative ways, the designers have developed a unique form language rooted in simplicity and functionality. Their attention to detail, connections and materiality generate value through design in what Buntain and Collings describe as a “warm-contemporary” aesthetic.
Fort Standard’s new collection, “Qualities of Material”, further explores the experimental dimension of Gregory Buntain and Ian Colling’s collaborative process by pushing natural materials beyond conventional limits and applications.
